PhD student position in signal processing for multi-antenna receivers

Publiceringsdatum: 2022-09-23

Project description

In this position, you will perform research in signal processing for emerging radar- and communication systems with many antennas (MIMO). As a key member of a cross-disciplinary team your research will combine digital precoding, nonlinear hardware modeling and compensation algorithms with experimental real-world investigations using Chalmers advanced multi-antenna testbed. Your research is an important part of our goal to demonstrate energy efficient and high capacity wireless communication systems and radar systems.

The Department of Electrical Engineering

At the Department of Electrical Engineering, we conduct internationally renowned research in biomedical engineering, antenna systems, signal processing, image analysis, automatic control, automation, mechatronics, and communication systems. We offer a dynamic and international research environment with about 200 employees from more than 20 countries, and with extensive national and international research collaborations with academia, industry and society. The department provides around 100 courses, of which most are included in the Master’s Programs ”Biomedical Engineering”, ”Systems, Control and Mechatronics”, ”Communication Engineering” and "Electrical Power Engineering".

Main responsibilities

Your major responsibilities are to pursue your own doctoral studies. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing. You will be involved in supervision of master students, and in teaching to some extent. You will be responsible for reporting and presenting the research results at project meetings.

Qualifications

To qualify for the position, you should have a Master of Science degree or equivalent corresponding to at least 240 higher education credits in electrical engineering, applied physics or mathematics discipline. In addition to the formal qualifications, selection is also based on the performance of the candidates in other works (e.g. thesis and advanced level courses), as well as through interviews and assignments. Besides good subject knowledge, emphasis will be on creative thinking, motivation, ability to cooperate, initiative to work independently and personal suitability for research training. Previous experience in the area of signal processing and estimation theory as well as proficiency in using Matlab are meritorious.

The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. If Swedish is not your native language, Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

Contract terms

Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of 5 years.
